Anthelion.

The anthelion is a rare colorless spot a degree or so across located at the anthelic point which is located at solar altitude 180° azimuth from the sun and on the parhelic circle. The Tricker arc, Wegeners arcs and the diffuse A and B arcs pass through the Anthelion. Many crystal shapes and orientation can cause this rare halo.
